    It seems that this answer should be of some great person from history, a Jesus Christ, Abraham Lincoln or Mahatma Gandhi.

    But I will be a little more mundane and say my father. The reason being my father died when I was seven years old so I was too young to get to know him, it would be nice to know what he was really like. I know his image as there were photographs and some blurred memories but I cannot remember the tone of his voice or mannerisms.

    My parents and Jesus Christ, then if it is allowed I would like to have more invites, I will include Judas Iscariot as well, it will be perhaps a good final Last Supper. Also included in the table will be Galileo, Plato, Alexander the Great, Leonardo Da Vinci, Elizabeth Taylor, Queen Elizabeth and  John Lennon, plus many many more. Can I will be allowed many person?

    I think it would be Jesus Christ.

    Jesus Christ said ...
    'I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'
    'I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me.'
    'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.'   
    'I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.'
    'I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.'

    What did He mean?
    I would talk to him about it.

    Both my parents died many years ago. I would love to spend time with both of them but, if I have to choose one person, that I would love to spend some time with, I would choose my Dad and this is why read more

    Ezekiel, I would love to see what he saw or quiz him about it a few hours.

    I would choose IMHOTEP
    He was the world’s greatest architectural Engineer. He built the Step Pyramid, the first multi-story building on Earth.
    He was referred to by the Greeks as Ascelpius, the God of Medicine, more than 2,000 years before “Hippocrates”
    He was the first Medical Doctor. He was the first to write the most detailed Medical Encyclopedia.
    He was the world’s first greatest male astronomer.
    He was worshiped as the Prince of Peace, the Anointed One, the Christ, 2600 years before another so called Christ

    Frederic Chopin.  My favorite composer.  It would be awesome to hear him play the piano.

    Oh my goodness, I would want to spend the time with my grandma.  I miss her and my grandpa horribly.  It would be a blessing to be with either one even for just a moment, to feel their arms around me one more time.

    I would have loved to meet and converse with any of the great scientists or philosophers of the past.  More specifically, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Isaac Newton, Galileo, or even Socrates would have been really cool to meet.

    My birth mother. I've never met her. I've never seen her face. I've never heard her voice.

    She gave me up for adoption after she was raped by a married man who was a family friend and neighbor. She had to keep the pregnancy a secret from her devout Christian family for fear that they would disown her for being an unwed mother and they wouldn't believe that this great family man forced himself on her. She fled from her family across the country for over a year living in a church pastor's basement while she was pregnant and delivered me.

    She had the social worker write down her story and provide it for me and then made the adoption closed.

    I love my own adopted parents very dearly, but if there is one person I could ever meet and spend even a brief moment with, it would be the one person and hero who chose to give me life.

    This is a tough one because there are SO many people to choose from. But I will opt for Oprah Winfrey, someone I truly admire. I would like to hear about her perseverance and understand what it takes to become a visionary of something great. Then, I would want to hear from her why giving matters so much to her.

    Spending a few hours with a dead person just sounds too weird.

    My Grandmother! Now I am older there is so much I would love to talk to her about. I miss here dearly.

    The person I could spend a few hours with would be my grandmother.  I never met her.  She died when my father was 17 years old.  It left a tremendous void in his life that some 20 years later, I was born and named after Grandma Woody.  I honestly believe that I share a lot of my ambition and straight-shooter attitude from her.
